republicans. this is a title but it's a lot of attention and thanks to mitt romney and paul ryan and got a lot of attention they literally rush to google after watching the convention and what's the matter with white people. so i want to think sam. [applause] but, you know, a lot of the commentary focused on the nostalgia republicans seem to feel for the golden age. as i describe in my title, and we can say that that is racism or sexism and some of it no doubt is. but i think it's important for us as progressives, those of us here that are progressive i hope we have some republicans, too. i think it's important to think about the golden age was and that there was a golden age for some americans and it coincided with my growing up. i felt like i was the last generation of people to whom the country really kept its promises. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and wor

to clear things up, had you been in congress you would've voted no on paul ryan's budget? collins: that is correct that i would've voted no on paul ryan's budget. i've told that to ms. hochul. i can tell you how many times. she disregards the truth. she continued to say this but maybe hopefully now this will be the last time she says it. try to this is the first, i understand debate on conversion, your pulse or be so you need to say that now. but here's the difference between. you have already said when you get to congress you will never vote with the party. and yet you have just said the democrats -- its ryan budget three comes out next thing in your in congress, which is a? you're talking out of both sides of your mouth, chris. you said you'd never vote with the democrats. you said you wouldn't go for the ryan budget. you go back and forth and say what you want. collins: ms. hochul, that's just a to at all. you like to put words in my mouth. debuts need to know i'm going to be fighting for small business all the time, not have the time like you. i'm going to be fighting for our
's debate between congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden, that should be a lot of fun. and i would have to say this ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. i do have to say that was an extremely one-sided in every definition of the term because they would have to bleep out every response just like they did on the view so that would be unfair. what ann is really one word, courageous, truly courageous. [applause] she is willing to use her amazing satirical way to highlight the most important issues of our day. and go describes herself as a polemicist who like sister the pot and does not pretend to be impartial or balanced as our broadcasters do. that is a perfect way to describe it and she is a lawyer. she graduated with honors from cornell university and she is also graduate of the university of michigan loft school and syndicated columnist, author of eight "new york times" bestsellers which once again confirms the ladies of the view are the only ones who have not read her book. they can comment on her book. the latest book, "mugged" racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama
enjoyed that one. tonight's debate between paul ryan and the vice president joe biden should be a lot of fun. and ann versus will be goldberger. i have to say that would be extremely 1-sided in every definition because you wouldn't even hear will be. they would have to be out every response like they did last night on of you. that would be unfair. the entertainment factor aside what welle -- what ann is is truly courageous. willing to use her amazing satirical wit to highlight the most important issues of our day. describes herself as a polemicist who likes to stir the pot and does not pretend to be impartial balance as are broadcasters do. airbag ground has prepared her well. she is a lawyer who graduated with honors from cornell university and graduated university of michigan law school, syndicated columnist, author of eight new york times bestsellers which confirms that they're the only ones who haven't read their books. and demagoguery from -- "mugged: racial demagoguery from the seventies to obama" is in sight land timely. i have to say after reading that i felt so unburdened and
it to pick out people who bowl and say bowlers made paul ryan fine but what if you are doing is mailing letters to soldiers on active duty with the game of challenging them, that is a crime according to bobby kennedy. and i have to say, while al gore grabbed his ankles in 2000 after he read, personally read my story that was breaking in england. this was before the supreme court ruled that thousands of like people were banished from the voter rolls in florida and after john kerry med -- read my book armed madhouse, he said that is why they lost the election and one of the last bills he introduced to make the stuck illegal on its face. right now you have to prove that it's racially biased. they are going after old jewish ladies and going after native americans. one of their big targets in the south. they say, we are just trying to look for the fraudulent voter. oh yeah, the fraudulent voter. bad as the new red scare. that is the new sleeper cell, fraudulent voter. there could be a fraudulent voter in this room. more likely there would be a 90-foot tarantula in this room because in the la
: absolutely not. i will see not see medicare vow chirrized. i know, this plan is what the paul ryan has bet his career on. but it would immediately have negative impacts on our seniors. i think protecting medicare is absolutely essential. it's why i cut sub subsidizes to insurance companies so we can put more money back in to medicare. not what you hear from my opponent. we took medicare saving from the insurance company and piled it in to filling the doughnut hole and put it in to preventive programs and extending the life of medicare. i won't see the program vowtured. my father had a tough year. unfortunately he's used medicare a lot this year. it was there for him. it was there for my mother when she had to taken over many of the family duties he had previously filled. no, i won't support that plan. >> moderator: heather? wilson: medicare is important now and in the future. we're to do things to save it. i actually don't like this part of congressman ryan's voucherrized approach. i support medicare advantage. that's a program here in new mexico four out of ten seniors choose to have. i w

that one. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and the vice president biden, that should be a lot of fun. check in next week. [applause] i would have to see three is ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. [laughter] that's extremely one sided in every definition of the term because you would not hear whoopi beeping out every response like they did last time ann was on "the view" which is unfair. the entertainment factor aside, ann is one word, "courageous," truly courageous, willing to use her amazing wit to highlight important issues of our day and describe herself as a to lem cyst who stirs the pot. her background prepared her well. she's a lawyer. she graduated from honors from cornell, graduate of university michigan law school, a columnist, author of eight "new york times" best sellers, confirming the ladies of "the view" are the only ones who have not read the books, they can't comment on them. "mugged," that book is insightful and i encourage everybody to read it. permly, after reading it, i felt so unburdened and liberated i'm going to go ahead and get r
, if you. gill: it's okay. it's easy to say he wouldn't cut pell grants, as paul ryan pell grants, as paul ryan monster, but it's important to understand where these two campaigns come from. this is an insider against an outsider. mr. davis recently had a fundraiser in missouri. the u.s. chamber of commerce, they are helping him and they are not doing it out of the goodness of their heart. they are doing it because they expect something in return they get washington dc. that would be to stand up for a budget such as paul ryan proposes. it increases pain and difficulty for college kids. i think college needs to be more accessible and we need to make it more portable. as i indicated, i think the programs should be readily available to young people such as yourself. being that 75% of my funding comes from people just like you, ordinary citizens, an average donation of $61, the proof is in the pudding. that is why i'm going to washington, to work on your behalf to and make sure you can get college and graduate and hopefully work to create jobs again within this economy. so that we don't have t
one of the reason i voted against the paul ryan budget. it changes in medicare i didn't believe was in the best interest of montana senior. my best interest i will always vote, i never vote to prizetize social security or medicare. i believe that they are sound and i believe that they are for for anybody on it now or going to be on it soon. >> moderator: senator tester. tester: in twine the record is clear. you voted to make it to a voucher system. congressman ryan bill. you have been on the platform before. talk abouting what you will never do. for instance, a few years back you talked about never taking pay raise. i believe last count probably five, so can we believe you this time? are you going continue do things like vote to make medicare in to a voucher system. rehberg: it's obviously you'll do anything to keep your job. [inaudible] i have never voted for a pay raise. you have. you voted for a pay raise just several months ago in the united states senate. and i never have voted for a pay raise. and i don't prospective the privatization of social security for anybody on it o
on the middle class taxpayers backs. they also endorsed the paul ryan budget that doubles down on the george bush's failed policies that give enormous tax giveaways to the wealthiest among us while cutting the needed programs like pell grants and medicare it's not the right solution. we need real tax reform that makes a difference and a good difference for our middle class. that includes allowing the bush tax cut at the top end to expire and a means of allowing hedge funds, ensuring that hedge fund managers take facts on their income as income and the kilby have tax relief for the small businesses and middle class. .. one i strongly favor is updating our electrical grid in new york. we waste 10% of our energy because of the outdated grid. fixing that will give us jobs and improve our energy future. the same can be said of many of the renewable options in upstate new york. we have biofuel projects and solar and wind here in upstate new york. solid investment will create jobs and improve energy independence. the keystone pipeline was made into a political football. the president wanted to stud
is paul ryan, because he started up a sign that the affordable care act sets, he took the $700 billion in cuts and put them back into the medicare program to strengthen the program for seniors. that's never one. number two, the study you just mentioned, and says he's got to resistant to all been has to do is going to talk to are hospitals or physicians or physical therapist or cardiologist, or chiropractors or skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes who are all feeling the direct impact and are so concerned, so concerned about how they will move forward with all of these cuts they're going to feel within the affordable care act. i think of all the parts of this campaign that have been so disturbing is the fear tactics that have been used against seniors that we don't want to make medicare stronger and healthier. i of the night he won year old mother. i am not going to medicare for. i know how important it is for her. >> moderator: ursala rozum. maffei: president obama -- rozum: present the obama failed. at what you propose to be with the president couldn't. rozum: i'm not sure if it'
fall 700 million out of the program. paul ryan takes money at of medicare? >> he has to buy a lot that is the baseline. but what is different with the affordable care act a uses the $700 billion to fund entitlements and other parts of the affordable care act. bryan put the money back into the system to make it solvent so current seniors could count on that plan to be there for them. rozum: we hear back and forth shows how complicated and dysfunctional health care is right now. repealing the affordable care act we need to approve it. that is why i support medicare for all where employees could offer health care not wearing about the bureaucracy of who profits. i oppose the affordable care act. maffei: in medicare and social security is a sacred trust. what ann marie buerkle says don't worry if you are over 55. there are cuts she supported i don't just medicare and social security to be solvent for over 55 but will third-generation as it has given bedrock support. >>moderator: to wrap up the health care i know where you stand but if the next congress should attempt to repeal the aff
. in 2009 rolled around they had huge spike in sales when obama was nag rated and we all know paul ryan reads it, rick is a fan. there's lots and lots of -- a whole ought to be anyway a whole atlas slugged caucus in the house of representatives. i'm forever seeing young people on the subway in washington, d.c., sitting down and reading. i had to read it, okay. so in 2009 i went out and got a copy and read it. i read the whole thing. the first thing i want to to say is never read it before going to bed. [laughter] yeah. "i am rand" contempt for humanity is so toxic and poi poison it's difficult to take. but let's see, the most fascinating thing about the book a lot of my idea for "pity the billionaire: the hard-times swindle and the unlikely comeback of the right come from. it's a deliberate inversion of the standard story in the 1930s. an america is that falling apart and in to a great depression. instead being caused by wall street or whatever you want to point to as the cause of the cross-appeal great depression, the gold standard. it's all caused by government. right. government meta
both looking over their shoulders. >> you mentioned paul ryan. of course i cannot go on without asking about him and the role that he has played in this congress and the degree to which his celebrity is embraced by other republicans who are presumably, as you say, as ambitious as the. he is the one who kind of got out. he is the one who rose above the others to be plucked as mitt romney's running mate. is everybody in the republican leaders have for that matter the republican ranks happy to see in there? is the resentment of him? to their respective as much as they are said to for his brain and his facility with numbers? >> they do respect him, and i think that there are those -- the people who resent and distressed paul ryan in the republican party are the members of the so-called tuesday group, which is the group, the waiting in member group of moderate republicans in the hand. they resented the imposition, the so-called ryan budget as the republican house budget. that budget, by the way, and brian's budget pancaking around for several years when he was the ranking member of the hous
. i would like to see it. i want to score it, but at least it's a plan. paul ryan's got a plan, tommy tompson's got a plan. we waited for months and years for barack obama to have a plan, tammy baldwin to have a plan. they say we have no plan, just stand by and play a harp while rome burns and see medicare collapse. that's not a smart plan. >> moderator: congresswoman? baldwin: first of all, we know something about the brand new plan on medicare, and that is that health costs in the federal employee health benefit program are increasing at a rate of 40% faster than traditional medicare. that gives you a sense. it's not a full score from cbo, but that ising? we know with the track record. it's not saving us money. it shifts a burden to seniors. secondly, this idea that he never sported the voucher program. he ran ads in the pry -- primary saying i'm the 51st vote to pass the ryan budget that contains this plan. in the republican state convention last summer, he stood on the stage and talked about the support for this map. you know, the tea party group, who better than me to end medicar
